are at an all time low. seems to me some of those profits could be used to pay workers a bit more. let's be honest here though, the real reason republicans oppose the minimum wage isn't their conservative ideology. after all, what's conservative about subsidizing the profits of private corporations through welfare, food stamps and medicaid so they can underpay their workers? the real reason they oppose the minimum page is precisely because their corporate benefactors want the taxpayer subsidy of low wages to continue. they're all for corporate welfare. it's time for the gop's corporate sponsors to step up and take some personal responsibility instead of leeching off the taxpayer. maybe if they took a stand for an increased minimum page they could make they're rebranding substantive. until then in tragic irony the million s of people who serve our food, take care of our children, and serve us in countless ways will continue to be undervalued and forced in government dependence by the gop and the businesses these republicans are beholden to. now to a man who is beholden to nobody, martin

good guys and bad guys and guns. many of us find him hard to trust. his recent editorial in the daily caller spoke of supposedly rampant crime and murder in some place he called south brooklyn in the days after hurricane sandy. i live in brooklyn and there is no place referred to as south brooklyn but i think it's safe to say when he says that, much of the country envisions a place clogged with black people. if adam lanza with walked in a school in south brooklyn, we would probably not be having a sustained national conversation about guns. adam just smushed the pain of the gun epidemic in america's faw face but black people have been living with that pain for so long we're numb to it. black on black crime is a far more prevalent problem. we need greater out rage over that. i say this as the son of a long time gun owner who carries a gun to keep him safe as he moves through boston's black areas. when people say what has obama done for the black community, tell them whatever he accomplishes on gun control will disproportionately help us. okay. that does it for "the cycle." martin, it's

to the non-partisan congressional budget office. they told us on tuesday this year they expect the economy to grow 1.4%. i don't think there's anybody listening to my voice on our financial news network of cnbc who likes that number, 1.4%. i suspect you don't like it either, larry. they said this fiscal contraction, including the sequester is cutting 1.5% off gdp growth, the difference between 1.4% and 2.9%. would you rather look at a 3.3 gdp growth in year? i would. that's what's upsetting people. >> the bigger question is, dan mitchell, do you buy the congressional budget office numbers? >> that's a conventional forecast. >> it may be a conventional forecast but it could also be wrong. dan mitchell, i want your professional opinion. we spent our heads off for the still luck package in 2009. this is still the worst economic recovery in the postwar period. dan, why not try limited government? or let me put it a different way, slightly less spending, is that good or bad for the economy? >> the congressional budget office is still wedded to the 1950s, 1960s style keynesian model. more govern
